Re: glock trigger job
- I have gotten a couple of trigger jobs done on my Glock 23. One is
I had a Glock standard "competition trigger" put in that made its
trigger pull the 3 pound pull that is typical of the Glock 34, 35.
You can also get complete after market jobs for big bucks that
lighten it up even more. Some almost completely do away with
the "Glock Trigger" and feel like single action triggers.
You can also get a pin installed that will not allow the trigger to
travel forward further than the striker reset point. So its like
you always have the slack taken out of the trigger, one crisp pull.
In the end, I concluded that since I carry my Glock for self-defence
as well as fun at the range I could not justify all the tinkering
with the trigger. The trigger was just to light for my concious to
allow, I am to afraid of a Negligent Discharge under stress. I now
have a standard 5 pound trigger but the armorer I know has smoothed
it out. It breaks a lot cleaner and crisper but it still is a
typical Glock trigger. I highly recommend it.
- Sorry, no personal experiance with third-party trigger jobs.
Personally, I just polished the heck out of the stock parts, although
I've had triggers from good to horrid on different glocks, even on the
same model. Apparently this is caused by variation in the trigger
parts. If your trigger is really bad, you may want to try just getting
another set of stock parts, which should be pretty cheap.
Have you looked at the Brian Enos forums? These two are right on topic:

I've played with a Vanek trigger and it's truly amazing what he can
do to a Glock trigger. No way I'd carry one like that but for a
range gun it's great.
